sdl2-imx (2.0.4) - SOC Support added

Postby msalerno » Wed Jun 24, 2015 2:30 am

I was just looking at the SDL docs and saw that there's a new version that includes quite a few new drivers for SOC systems. Specifically Vivante.

SDL 2.0.4

This is my first PKGBUILD and it seems to be working fine.

I'm running this on my Cubox-I.
Code: Select all
SDL2 Configure Summary:
Building Shared Libraries
Building Static Libraries
Enabled modules : atomic audio video render events joystick haptic power filesystem threads timers file loadso cpuinfo assembly
Assembly Math   :
Audio drivers   : disk dummy oss alsa(dynamic)
Video drivers   : dummy opengl_es1 opengl_es2 vivante
Input drivers   : linuxev linuxkd
Using libudev   : YES
Using dbus      : YES
Using ibus      : NO

This is a list of major changes in SDL's version history.
Code: Select all

* Added support for web applications using Emscripten, see docs/ for more information
* Added support for web applications using Native Client (NaCl), see docs/ for more information
* Added an API to queue audio instead of using the audio callback:
    SDL_QueueAudio(), SDL_GetQueuedAudioSize(), SDL_ClearQueuedAudio()
* Added events for audio device hot plug support:
* Added SDL_PointInRect()
* Added SDL_HasAVX2() to detect CPUs with AVX2 support
* Added SDL_SetWindowHitTest() to let apps treat parts of their SDL window like traditional window decorations (drag areas, resize areas)
* Added SDL_GetGrabbedWindow() to get the window that currently has input grab, if any
* Added SDL_RenderIsClipEnabled() to tell whether clipping is currently enabled in a renderer
* Added SDL_CaptureMouse() to capture the mouse to get events while the mouse is not in your window
* Added SDL_WarpMouseGlobal() to warp the mouse cursor in global screen space
* Added SDL_GetGlobalMouseState() to get the current mouse state outside of an SDL window
* Added a direction field to mouse wheel events to tell whether they are flipped (natural) or not
* Added GL_CONTEXT_RELEASE_BEHAVIOR GL attribute (maps to [WGL|GLX]_ARB_context_flush_control extension)
* Added EGL_KHR_create_context support to allow OpenGL ES version selection on some platforms
* Added NV12 and NV21 YUV texture support for OpenGL and OpenGL ES 2.0 renderers
* Added a Vivante video driver that is used on various SoC platforms
* Added an event SDL_RENDER_DEVICE_RESET that is sent from the D3D renderers when the D3D device is lost, and from Android's event loop when the GLES context had to be recreated
* Added a hint SDL_HINT_NO_SIGNAL_HANDLERS to disable SDL's built in signal handling
* Added a hint SDL_HINT_THREAD_STACK_SIZE to set the stack size of SDL's threads
* Added SDL_sqrtf(), SDL_tan(), and SDL_tanf() to the stdlib routines
* Improved support for WAV and BMP files with unusual chunks in them
* Renamed SDL_assert_data to SDL_AssertData and SDL_assert_state to SDL_AssertState

* Added support for Windows Phone 8.1
* Timer resolution is now 1 ms by default, adjustable with the SDL_HINT_TIMER_RESOLUTION hint
* SDLmain no longer depends on the C runtime, so you can use the same .lib in both Debug and Release builds
* Added SDL_SetWindowsMessageHook() to set a function to be called for every windows message before TranslateMessage()
* Added a hint SDL_HINT_WINDOWS_ENABLE_MESSAGELOOP to control whether SDL_PumpEvents() processes the Windows message loop
* You can distinguish between real mouse and touch events by looking for SDL_TOUCH_MOUSEID in the mouse event "which" field
* SDL_SysWMinfo now contains the window HDC
* Added support for Unicode command line options
* Prevent beeping when Alt-key combos are pressed
* SDL_SetTextInputRect() re-positions the OS-rendered IME

Mac OS X:
* Implemented drag-and-drop support
* Improved joystick hot-plug detection
* The SDL_WINDOWEVENT_EXPOSED window event is triggered in the appropriate situations
* Fixed relative mouse mode when the application loses/regains focus
* Fixed bugs related to transitioning to and from Spaces-aware fullscreen-desktop mode
* Fixed the refresh rate of display modes
* SDL_SysWMInfo is now ARC-compatible

* Enabled building with Mir and Wayland support by default.
* Added IBus IME support
* Added a hint SDL_HINT_IME_INTERNAL_EDITING to control whether IBus should handle text editing internally instead of sending SDL_TEXTEDITING events
* Added support for multiple audio devices when using Pulseaudio
* Fixed duplicate mouse events when using relative mouse motion

* Added support for iOS 8
* Added support for the hint SDL_HINT_ACCELEROMETER_AS_JOYSTICK
* Added sRGB OpenGL ES context support on iOS 7+
* Added native resolution support for the iPhone 6 Plus
* The SDL_WINDOW_ALLOW_HIGHDPI window flag now enables high-dpi support, and SDL_GL_GetDrawableSize() or SDL_GetRendererOutputSize() gets the window resolution in pixels
* SDL_GetWindowSize() and display mode sizes are in the "DPI-independent points" coordinate space rather than pixels (matches OS X behavior)
* SDL_SysWMinfo now contains the OpenGL ES framebuffer and color renderbuffer objects used by the window's active GLES view
* Fixed various rotation and orientation issues
* Fixed memory leaks

* Added a hint SDL_HINT_ANDROID_SEPARATE_MOUSE_AND_TOUCH to prevent mouse events from being registered as touch events

Raspberry Pi:
* Added support for the Raspberry Pi 2
